Little Snitch - Checks who's spying on my computer

Plex - Media Server across devices, brilliant on AppleTV

MPlayerX - Find this native video player better then VLC, although lacks a playlist feature
http://www.mplayerx.org/

iAwriter - Brilliant little note taker for concentrating and not worrying about formatting
http://www.iawriter.com/

Apple iWorks - Don't think anything needs to be said here
http://www.apple.com/iwork/

Oh and also daisy disk as has been listed before.

Great topic. I have really benefited from this thread, Thanks!
One program that I have used for some time now and have not seen listed is pyTivoX.

For the tivo users out there, this makes it really easy to get video from your Hack to your tivo.

Some interesting titles for me to explore in here! Thanks :))

Here are some of my favourites for others to investigate:

EasyCrop - seriously good, quick and functional image cropper.

Extensis Portfolio (Client) - very stable image cataloguing app. Has never crashed on me, unlike other apps when they hit a graphic they don't understand...

Wallet - by Acrylic Software. Password repository.

Delicious Library - one of the best showcase apps to let people see what working on a Mac is like!

LittleSnapper - screen capture library

Scrivener - all kinds of writing projects

iWork - Pages and Numbers. THE office apps

:)

my favorite app is fidelia .you can purchase this in the app store
it playes all lossless codecs(flac alac ogg etc.)
very high end sound....waaaay better than iTunes
it will play audio files as high as 196kb streams(24bit)..
highly recommended for audiophiles that use pc's(osx)for music...
flac files sound amazing with this app....
if u r a audio geek this is highly recommended....
:D .... :thumbup: ....


note with hires files it sounds like sacd.....u have to hear it to believe it...
that said u still need a decent sound setup...
i use krell pre and amp(hts-pre ksa-250 amp) into magnepan 3.5 panels
13k in dollars.....worth every penny
